Following his earlier appearance with The Avengers, Peter Parker is desperate for his mentor Tony Stark to make Spider-Man a full-time member of the team. Trouble is, he’s only 15, still in school, and prone to bouts of petulance and immaturity. He is also struggling with balancing being a heroic crime-fighter with the everyday concerns of a teenager and the challenge of a forthcoming national science competition. When disgruntled blue-collar employee of Tony Stark, Adrain Toomes (The Vulture) emerges, intent on stealing Avengers technology to sell on the black market, Peter finds the two sides of his life brought together in unexpected ways. This energetic blockbuster balances elements of a high school movie with conventions of the superhero genre to hugely entertaining effect.
Activities to support engagement, debate and reflection alongside a screening from the Activate: Effecting Change strand of the festival.
